Getting Ready

If you are sending your daughter to Camp DeSoto for the first time, you probably have a million questions.

How can you prepare your daughter for the emotional transition to Camp, and how should you respond if you get a homesick letter? When can you visit your daughter at Camp, and should you? What can you send through the Camp mail and how will she celebrate her birthday? What if she gets sick and has to go to the Health Center?

Veteran parents, we are here for you, too! Need a reminder about the mailing address? Looking for your camper’s forms?

This website is a great resource for many of the things you might be curious about.

We’ve included a few helpful links to help you navigate this section and better understand the Camp DeSoto experience.

From what makes Camp DeSoto unique to how many t-shirts to pack, we certainly understand that you have a lot to think through, and we would love to talk about Camp with you. We hope you will feel free to call the Camp Office or send us an e-mail anytime.
